Re: “Support unique local stores with your gift giving this season

Disappointed to see you didn't include http://wwwkoffeekompanions.com in this section because online businesses based in Colorado Springs are also "local." They distribute profits to many local businesses who are vendors or are featured in Koffee Kompanions blog at http://www.koffeekompanions.com/blog-cozyc…. Anyone who drinks coffee, tea, or other beverages will benefit from keeping them hot or cold with cup wraps, caps, and cozies for takeout cups, coffee mugs, French presses, and teapots from this premier provider--in business since 1996.

Re: “From here to Hillary, our suggestions for contested races

Agree with C Wilk and Ralph Jacobson above. Indy's endorsement of Terri Carver over Julia Endicott for HD20 looks like a "phone-it-in" job that didn't bother to investigate Carver's positions on several major issues that affect services in our west-side district.

As mentioned, Carver is against Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood, so she'll vote to defund PP in favor of regional health centers that don't offer abortion services. That will seriously threaten PP with potential closure--denying more than 8,000 people medical services from Colorado Springs' only Planned Parenthood clinic right here in HD20.

I'd also point out that Julia Endicott attended the reopening of our PP after the horrible shooting in November, whereas our Republican mayor and Terri Carver were nowhere to be found.

Carver's positions on "constitutional rights" and education sound very much like religious or libertarian objections that have led to discrimination against LGBTQ and other minorities, refusal to recognize reasonable gun-control measures, and acceptance of religious influences and presence in public education.

Remember, as HD20 representative, Carver influences state laws on personhood, sex education, school curricula, and other important matters. Her work on human trafficking and Waldo Canyon reconstitution can't substitute for wrong-headedness on other issues that affect many of her constituents.
